Clay-limestone soils are rather poor, but they have enough minerals to be ideal for growing grapes. Due to the abundance of sunlight and a high location above sea level, its maturation is gradual and slower than in the rest of the region of Castilla La Mancha. Berries at the same time retain delicious acidity and pronounced fruit nuances, which disappear at higher temperatures.
